Back Garden Star Trail

Uploaded by: WurzelDave

Wednesday August 14, 2013

Bridgwater, Somerset, United Kingdom

Caption: Taken with a Tokina SD (FD) 28-70mm manual lens set at f5.6 and 35mm. As for the exposure time somewhere less than 30 minutes, the cable release lock slipped somewhere in that time. This was a test shot for later in the year (just to see how it turned out), there were plenty of street lights in the area plus there may be some film reciprocation for good measure!

The worst thing is not one Perseid meteor went across the field of view in the time the camera was taking this pic, saw two afterwards!

About WurzelDave


I'm a 'wurzel' who lives in South West England (UK) in the county of Somerset (next to Devon), famous for scrumpy cider, Cheddar cheese, The Wurzels (well worth going to see) & birth county of 2009 F1 world champion Jenson Button.Like the rest of the West Country, Somerset has many areas, places & landscapes worth a visit such as Glastonbury Tor & Abbey ruins, Quantock hills, West Somerset Railway, Cheddar Gorge, & Exmoor, to name but a very few.Favourite holiday destiations are Iceland (see alot of photos) & the Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi Sweden (also see photos). Still a lover of the flim camera, my first camera was an Halina 110 camera which you could buy flip flashes for! I have a Canon 3000V SLR film camera, also have some TLR cameras from the 1950's plus Canon powershot A3300, SX150 & SX40 digital cameras which are useful for close up macro shots & also makes film 'last' longer! I also have a variety of film cameras (35mm, stereo, 110, 120 format) dating from 1940 upwards. Photos from these cameras will appear here from time to time
